    I have a 2009 double cab trd off road. It will not slide in snow, the traction control goes off and then it cuts the power and hits the brakes. What can I do to turn that stuff off so it can slide how most older trucks do, it drives me crazy. Any info would be greatly appriciated. Thanks

    If you have vsc you can turn it off. While stopped: Press and hold that button, it will light up the slipppery road icon. I think the intent is to allow off so you can get unstuck but i think you will be able to swing the back end around.

    I slip more with less weight in back. Don't slide so hard you hit a pole or a curb!

    Holy traction control Batman...we need David K


    Seriously tho...David K's topics about traction control will help you out if you can't understand how the owner manual explains it.

    I was thinking more in the lines of drifting perhaps.

    I could care less if some of you think it is good it stops it from sliding, ever been in an empty parking lot or mtns roads with no one on them, yeah it is fun to slide so get off my case. The truck does not have the vsc button. Also turning off traction control doesn't do anything. It will allow the rear tires to spin if the truck stays stright. If it goes to slide then brakes are hit no power and abs/trac control going off.

    the vsc button and the traction control button is one in the same isn't it?
